Webster's defines civics as the study of civic affairs and the duties
and rights of citizenship. Civic affairs are how our government, economic,
and political systems are supposed to operate as defined by our founding
fathers. In light of this, we will focus on the Constitution for the first
half of the year. For the second half, we'll study branches of government,
political parties, foreign policy, opinion/truth/propaganda in politics,
and citizen responsibilities such as voting and how that works.
Tutor: Michelle Griep is a historical fiction author with an avid interest in government affairs. She has been a homeschool mom for the past twenty years, many of which have been spent tutoring other students and teaching classes in a variety of subject areas.
